Super nice and tasty

We ate at this restaurant late in the evening, but it was still busy and the service was excellent. When my daughter complained of being cold inside, they had no problem moving us to the patio. The selection and quality of the tapas were great and the mofongo was very good.

This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and really wanted to explore the area around the resort. Tasca OleLelolai was recommended to us by the resort, and it was by far the best meal of our trip. Not only was the server patient with us trying to decide what to order, but friendly and attentive. The chorizo in the... More

Great food, quick ride from the El Conquistador hotel. Known for their tapas but we had the skirt steak. Each portion could have fed two people. Great drinks and good beer selection. Good view of the marina too. Very clean. Locals and vacationers all looked like they were enjoying themselves. We would definitely go back and would highly recommend the... More

If you are staying near Fajardo (El Conquisitor perhaps?) you should check out the Ole Lelolai for terrific Tapas as well as a regular menu. Sometimes it is nice to get off property and away from resort food (good as it is) and get into the neighborhood a bit. We went on a Monday night and in what we took... More

Had a great tapas meal with the family. With approximately 20 different options to eat, we were spoilt for choice in terms of what we were going to have. In the end went for eight different types (for a party of four); sweet plantain balls, piquillo peppers stuffed with crab and separately chicken, garlic mushrooms over bread, mushrooms stuffed with...

Tapas, way good. Sangria, we tried the mango and it was fabulous. The location is a bit obscure, but once found, there is parking across the street. Balcony seating is a must. Very nice service, all very willing to explain the menu items and make suggestions. A nice tapas was brought to try, on the house. Reasonably priced considering the... More

We decided to adventure out of the el conquistador and look for something different. We shared tapas. They were all delightful and beautifully prepared. I would have loved to go back and order an entree. We ordered three desserts and split them. Delicious. Would absolutely go back if I ever return!

We were a group of 14 and had not made a reservation, but they accommodated us within an hour. The service was great. Everyone loved their choice from the menu. They have tappas which I had, garlic shrimp and chorizo in wine sauce, which were so good. The serving size of all the meals were large. My spouse ordered the... More

Excellent tapas and meat. Very friendly personnel and very nice atmosphere. Informal place, and really affordable. Nice view.

Dinner was good...the view was great...but the sangrias stole the show! The service here (and everywhere we visited in PR) was amazing. Everyone is so helpful and friendly which makes everything better. The kitchen sent us a delicious appetizer to sample as well.
